• Holi Special: Plan the Perfect House Party


    Holi, the festival full of fun and lots of bright colors is a very special event for all of us. And It’s not just about religion, colors and fun, it also brings people closer, rekindles old ties and makes way for new bonds. Not to forget all those yummy sweets and delicious food!

    On that note, here’s how you can make your Holi party hip ‘n’ happening for yourself and your loved ones:

    Make a Guest List



    A guest list can make or break any party. Make sure all your guests know each other or at least are familiar with each other so that you don’t have to spend all your time introducing them to each other and they have a good time as well. The main idea is to enjoy the party at the fullest.

    Colors for Fun



    Make sure you only use organic colors so that it doesn’t harm you and your loved ones skin. Keep a few dry plates of colors for easy access. Also, keep few fancy pitchkaris, water balloons, and buckets of water handy to soak your guests up. You can also arrange a tube pool where the guests can jump in for a Holi dip.

    Spice up the party with right food



    Keep the food menu simple, festive and Tasty too. You can prepare bhang pakodas & dahi vadas. Alternatively, serve homemade gujiya and other sweets. For drinks, try thandhai and bhang lassi.

    Dance and Music



    Music is what would set everyone in perfect mood for the party! Don’t forget to make a playlist with classic songs like Rang barse, Aaj na chodenge, Jai jai Shiv Shankar etc. Also, tracks like Do me a favor and Holi khele Raghuveera are sure to get your guests groove.

    All in all, we hope you have a great time celebrating the festival of life, love and colors. Do let us know what are your plans for Holi and if you would like to add something to the list above.
